I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Lothian Atlantean Alexander GFS 422N

Very much an icon of Edinburgh was it's smartly turned out fleet of locally bodied Alexander Leyland Atlanteans which were not just a great asset to this fine city but a reminder of the days when Municipal Transport gave a proper service to the ratepayers. Just think if we still had it and Beeching had not pulled up all the railway branch-lines many of which could have become viable again with cheaper light rail Britain might not now be quickly heading for road lock-jam in urban areas.
